4 stars First of all let me say this album sounds more and more unified, polished than their creation on stage. EILIFF were an authentic heavy jazzy keyboard-based German psychedelic outfit based upon a deep, strict rhythm party. My first EILIFF was their live album "Close Encounters With Their Third One" featuring three of their repertoires via this studio album "Girlrls!". It's quite interesting for me to compare their studio material with one on stage. The titled track, "Hallimasch", or "Journey To The Ego" in this album is shorter and sounds more refined than in the live one released later ... makes sense really, but I'm afraid I would miss something addictive, immersive this time.

Guess they would have launched condensed sound and material because created in a studio. Every track is pretty fantastic indeed, and I love repetitive, convoluted melodic reincarnation style especially in the titled one. On the contrary, remarkably surprised at kinda pop / catchy atmosphere in the first two songs (actually I've got absorbed in Rainer's incredible excessive keyboard works in "Eve Of Eternity" perfectly ... one of my gems). Obviously on stage the performers could grab the feeling of the audience, who should be merged together all around, and play music for driving themselves crazy pleasant. Yes via a studio recording we cannot touch the same addiction like the stage, of course.

No suspicion this album is fascinating, nonetheless.
